  • Patent number: 11300197
    Abstract: The differential device measuring tool measures an inflow amount of lubricating oil flowing into a housing space through a communication hole during the rotation of a differential case having a case main body in which the housing space and the communication hole are formed and a bearing boss having a through-hole protruding from the case main body and communicating with the housing space. The measuring tool has a collecting portion and a deriving portion. The collecting portion does not interfere with the rotating differential case in the housing space in which the differential gear mechanism is not housed, and has a recess opening and collects the lubricating oil flowing into the housing space through the communication hole. The deriving portion is inserted through the through-hole of the bearing boss and have a deriving flow channel. The deriving flow channel communicates with the recess, and extends to the outside.

  • Publication number: 20220065821
    Abstract: Ultrasonic flaw detection uses a phased-array ultrasonic-flaw-detection probe. The flaw detection probe is placed such that the center of curvature of the flaw detection probe coincides with a reference center of curvature of a subject. The flaw detection probe is translated along a scan direction. The flaw detection probe emits an ultrasonic beam such that the position upon which the ultrasonic beam converges coincides with the center of curvature of the curve of the outline of the cross section of the subject at the scan position, receives the resulting reflected beam, and estimates the length of a flaw in the circumferential direction of the subject. In addition, the estimated length of the flaw is corrected using a correction coefficient corresponding to the distance between the center of curvature of the reference scan position and the center of curvature of the scan position in the thickness direction of the subject.

  • Publication number: 20210183045
    Abstract: A server of a crop growth stage determination system includes a processor. The processor inputs first images obtained by image capturing crops in a manner such that crop shapes are extractable. The Processor inputs growth stages each indicating a level of physiological growth of the crops for each of the first images. The processor constructs a learned model by performing deep learning to associate images of the crops and growth stages of the crops based on the input first images and the input growth stage. The processor inputs a second image obtained by image capturing crops a growth stage of which is unknown, in a manner such that crop-shapes are extractable. The processor determines the growth stage for the input second image based on the learned model. The processor outputs the determined growth stage.

  • Patent number: 10935447
    Abstract: An impact sensing laminate 2 has a first surface 211 on which an impact force acts; a second surface 222 brought in contact with a protection object OBJ; an impact absorption layer 21 and a first pressure-sensitive layer 22. When a direction heading for the second surface from the first surface is defined as a first direction, the first pressure-sensitive layer is in the first direction from the impact absorption layer. The first pressure-sensitive layer is a layer of sensing a first impact force as the impact force to have been attenuated by the impact absorption layer.

  • Patent number: 10921292
    Abstract: A supersonic inspection jig has an insertion section 22 inserted into a hole 10 of an inspection target 1, and a flange section 23 connected with the insertion section 22 and contacting the inspection target 1. The flange section 23 has a flange section first surface 231 which is a surface on the side contacting the inspection target 1 and a flange section second surface 232 which is a surface on the side contacting the probe 41. A position limiting section 26 is provided on the flange section second surface 232 to limit the position of the probe 41 so that the probe 41 is maintained in a position separate from a central axis C of the hole 10. Thus, the inspection around the hole becomes easily executable.

  • Publication number: 20210018473
    Abstract: An ultrasonic testing device includes: a signal acquiring unit which receives a reflected echo signal relating to a reflected echo of ultrasonic waves from an object being inspected, a defect detecting unit which detects a defect of the object being inspected on the basis of the reflected echo signal, and a display unit which displays the detection result of the defect detecting unit. The defect detecting unit uses the maximum signal strength of the reflected echo signal exceeding a first threshold value to detect the defect. The first threshold value is a value with which the signal strength is less than the maximum signal strength of the reflected echo signal from the surface of the object, using as an evaluation range an interval between a position which is positioned a first distance from the surface of the object and a bottom surface of the object.
